Hey there! I'm sitting here in the kitchen typing a bit before I call it a night and zone out to some Larkrise to Candleford. Today was a make-up school day from an ice day last month. Turns out, there's more ice on the way tonight and tomorrow morning. So who knows, we might have to cancel again tomorrow! What crazy weather it's been this year. Spring really does want to be here! See that henbit in the top photo? It's everywhere right now (though looking wilted and tricked by the artic snap). I was browsing through my archives of photos from past March's a little while ago. Two years ago, at this time the poppies were blooming. Mine are bushy but showing absolutely no signs of blooming yet. And how can they? This morning was 19 degrees! Oh, but Saturday was 80 degrees! All of my perennials that were just feeling courageous enough to send out tender green leaves are zapped again. Poor things! It's looking like a slow start to spring around these parts.
I hauled my computer out to the kitchen again this afternoon (it's the warmish spot of the house). And with these frigid days, I'm back to enjoying an afternoon cup of chai. One can't really complain about chai in the afternoon. It's the equivalent of ice coffee in July. Sometimes you gotta work with what you have. And if it's icicles in March, then chai it is.
The chicks are a week old today. It's there second Monday! And I must say, they have the best seat in our house. They get to hang out in the bathroom with a space heater on all day. Everytime I go in there to potty, I open the door and a wave of warm air hits me and I then I think I could just snuggle up right there with them and a good book all day. Maybe I'll try that tomorrow and see how long I can go before anyone misses me.
Oh, and the picture of me! You know, I'm not in the habit of taking selfies or posting pictures of myself. But Bea took this one of me the other day and I just thought it was kind of interesting. A deviation from the awkward mama in front of the camera who is pretending to look natural and comfortable sort.
So there you have it, another Monday post. Is this a new habit for me?
How was your Monday? What's your world looking like these days?
